Keeps Death's Spectre Away


A rebel soldier's grave in the Wesleyan Cemetery, St. Louis.

Written by a lady:

Here lize a stranger braiv,
who died while fitin the Suthern Confederacy to save.
piece to his Dust.
"braive Suthern friend
from iland 10
you reached a Glory us end.
we plase these flowrs above the stranger's hed
In honor of the shiverlus ded.
Sweet sprint rest in heven
Ther'l be know Yankis there.
